Meeting the DREAMers

I’d read a lot about the DREAMers – the undocumented Latino students who helped Obama win his second term – so I was fascinated to interview Carlos Saavedra, one of the leaders of United We Dream, for the Guardian. Despite being jet-lagged he was a walking life lesson in effective activism, and is stirring up long-overdue debate around undocumented people here in the UK as a guest of the Hope not Hate campaign. I also wrote a piece about his visit for the New Statesman here.
